To the students, staff, parents, and community of Lee County School District,
I would like to take this opportunity to re-introduce myself. My name is John Hoy, and I have recently been appointed as the Interim Superintendent of Lee County School District. I very much look forward to working with each of you during this transitional period. Tis is my thirty-ninth year in public education. My background is a teacher, high school principal, superintendent, assistant state commissioner, and assistant state superintendent. Most of my career has been devoted to working in schools districts in the delta region of Arkansas, including nine years of service in the Lee County School District.
My role as interim is to continue to build on the progress made by outgoing superintendent Dr. Zrano Bowles and facilitate the transition to the next district leader.
I greatly appreciate the support I have received from those of you that I have spoken with this week, and I thank all of you for your continued support of the Lee County School District.
Yours in Education,
John Hoy, Ed.S.
